USA Today Coaches’ Poll Released

USA Today released their preseason coaches’ poll just a little while ago. Here it is, in its full glory. Before proceeding, however, please note that your much beloved St. John’s Red Storm did not meet the requirements of a poll taken by coaches. To be fair to these coaches, they are basically taking educated guesses at this point. No different from what you or I would do.

Okay. Here it is. The USA Today Coaches’ Poll in all its wondrous, always topical, never controversial, fullness — or something like that…likely something.
